If you use Tumblr, you’ve probably seen pictures of these “New World Transparent Specimens” preserved by artist Iori Tomita.  The photos of the specimens are cool, but videos of specimens of this type (find them on YouTube) moving around  (not on their own, obviously) make me really want to check them out in person.

Of course, I’m a little bit concerned about where these animals come from.  According to this video, the “discarded carcasses” are from “butchers or anywhere he finds them…”

*Posts are getting a bit shorter this week and next, as I’m actually in Italy through the end of the month!*
